Hours per week 1-3
Beep is based on the principle that all language-learning situations should be meaningful and relevant to the students’ own worlds, real or imaginary. Students bring diverse abilities and experiences to the classroom and learn at different rates, so they are actively encouraged to support each other and cooperate through pair and group work, to allow everyone to participate, whatever their level. A wide variety of activities like surveys, questionnaires and personalized writing brings children’s lives into the classroom, while songs, chants, role plays, stories, games and tongue twisters cater to different learning styles and intelligences, helping children develop different competences.
Scope & sequence
With Beep, students will:
- explore different curriculum areas through CLIL lessons.
- learn and practice phonics using comic strips and tongue twisters.

Your interleaved Teacher’s Book gives you step-by-step instructions for presenting each lesson, including Activity Book pages and Evaluations. From boxes summarizing Objectives, Target Language and Materials, through the Getting Started activity, to Finishing Up, we take into account answers and listening scripts, and also explain where to introduce the Flashcards, Posters, and other resources like Worksheets. In the book introduction, the indispensable Beep Activity Bank suggests plenty of ways to get the most out of these different resources, and we also cover background information on methodology and competences.
